Time machine achievement : see 'Ecco forum page'This game is excellent (great OST, various graphics, smooth gameplay, nice difficulty curve)... until you reach 'The tube'.

"The tube" and "The machine" are ridiculously hard... and come on ! Restart "the machine" all over again when you get defeated by the last boss ??!! How mean is that !

Who made this set? Achievements are triggered by the launch of the game and from the viewing of the demo version. Im not talking about the achievement "Clear stage in The tube without taking damage". Where to play like TAS

All the nostalgia I had for this game apparently was for the sequel instead. It feels too labyrinthic and repetitive (same as music), lack of checkpoints is unforgiving, and the last stage is... masochistic. Good thing they improved in Echo: TToT :)

Odd how people doesn't come often here... Does Ecco scare people away so much? I mean, after going through "The Machine", I know better now and people is justified in not coming over, lmao.

OMG, that last level is insane. All that memorization just to get killed right away on the final boss and have to start it all over again. You win game, you win.

This is my first mastered game! I was playing through it because it's the game of the month on r/emulation, and after finishing the game I only had one achievement left ("Can't Touch This"), so I just went back and finished that one.It seems odd to me that there's no achievement for rescuing all 6(?) dolphins, and it wasn't clear what it did in-game either (although, I only rescued the first set of three, maybe both are needed to do something?).
